  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

The Carpenters Arms, Gt. Wilbraham

Anyone fancy a pint at the Carpenters Arms tonight, I've been looking for a route on OS map and come up with the following,

Green Dragon bridge
Bates Bite Lock
Snout Corner
Anglesey Abbey woods
White Fen Lode
Swaffham Bulbeck
Great Wilbraham

Not 100% sure on all the foot paths, so don't shoot the messenger

So who fancy the above?

Re: The Carpenters Arms, Gt. Wilbraham

Yep I will be there. Have not go a clue where most of those places are Jon so I will just hand around the back of the pack tonight

Re: The Carpenters Arms, Gt. Wilbraham

not out tonight as I have work commitments (mostly wining and dining at Pembroke College!)

Weather looks great have a good evening.

Re: The Carpenters Arms, Gt. Wilbraham

Weather looks good, route looks good, pub looks good, I'm back from France a day early but...

I'm not out due to family commitments.

Have fun, should be out in a couple of weeks

Re: The Carpenters Arms, Gt. Wilbraham

hi Jon, the puncture is fixed, i will be out.
Paul, it is a ride out flat. no need to bring the spare gears for hill climbing.

If you can cope with a slow one, I can assist with navigation
